Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
Places to play in and pray in,
Where nature may heal and cheer
And give strength to body and soul alike.
-- John Muir, naturalist, environmental philosopher and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness areas in the United States

A quiet, wet day at the Arboretum, few visitors due to the weather, but still so much nature to be seen and enjoyed. Rain droplets on Ginkgo leaves and a Miscanthus flower head and bright, red berries on a Winterberry Holly (Ilex verticillata 'Red Sprite'). Fall is truly here, bringing its own brand of beauty.
